"Red River Blue ... Blake Shelton ... Warner Bros. (2011)"
on July 12, 2011
Warner Bros. presents "Red River Blue" -- featuring Blake Shelton, with a great release. These days country music is all over the place, but this is what it should sound like. Shelton's voice and vocals on this release are better than ever, the songs are blends of Honky Tonk, love songs, ballads, mixed with rowdy party tunes that ring clear throughout this one of a kind album
If you're not a Blake Shelton fan, you will be after a brief listen to this album. This is his best so far, and that's saying something.
There is not one track I would skip over. Shelton's formula for putting over a tune is almost classic within the fueled arrangements and musicians bringing it all together. Bonus ingredients is the back up vocals by Miranda Lambert and Martina McBride.
Blake Shelton appeared on the 44th Annual Country Music Awards on November 10, 2010 where he performed "All About Tonight" and won Male Vocalist of the Year.
